Henry Cho, born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, began his career as a stand-up comedian in the 1980s.

In addition, he has had roles in numerous movies and TV shows and is a repeat performer on the Grand Ole Opry. His comedy routines focus on growing up as a Korean in East Tennessee during the 1960s and 1970s and being “Korean with a Southern Accent.” Due to his unique childhood experiences, Cho brings a light-hearted inspirational message about finding and developing one’s own strengths to become successful.$35
